Cici has three active skills and a passive skill including one special ultimate skill like most heroes in the game. In this Mobile Legends guide, we will also talk about the skills to use in certain scenarios as well as skill combos to be able to play Cici to her maximum potential.
Passive – Performer’s Delight
Cici generates a stack of Delight after dealing damage, increasing her Movement Speed and Spell Vamp per stack. The effects double when at full stacks. This passive effect is quite useful as it makes her highly mobile on the battlefield while being sustained whilst in combat.
Skill 1 – Yo-Yo Blitz
Cici throws Yoyo at the nearest enemy within range and locks onto them, hitting them up to 10 times and dealing Physical Damage based on the target’s Max HP per hit. Cici can move and use other skills during this attack. This is her primary damage ability which maximizes her mobility by ensuring enemies get damaged when they’re locked onto.
Skill 2 – Buoyant Bounce
Cici leaps to a target location. If she lands on any unit (not including Turrets and Base), she can leap again in the joystick direction. If she lands on an enemy with the first leap, she deals Physical Damage to them.
Ultimate Skill 3 – Curtain Call
Cici throws Yoyo at the target enemy hero and links them with another nearby enemy hero, pulling them together for some time. During this time, Cici can use Yo-Yo Blitz to attack both linked targets at the same time. If only one target is within the range of Yo-Yo Blitz, Cici will attack the target twice.
Skill-up method for Cici
Players are expected to unlock Cici’s Skill 1 first and upgrade it alongside Skill 2 accordingly, and ultimate whenever available. Skill 1 upgrade should be prioritized as it is Cici’s primary damage ability
Best Emblem set and Spells for Cici in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang
Cici is not just a skill-dependent fighter hero but also a hero with abilities that provide just enough mobility and sustain to make her easily eliminate enemy targets. Her emblem set-up should then be able to provide as much mobility and sustain as needed to excel on the battlefield.
Given this, we’ve brought up some of the best Emblem/Talent Setup that is advisable to be used for Cici. The Custom Fighter Emblem ever since its Revamp, provides players with access to three different talents. Hence, for the New Hero Cici Emblem Set-up, the following setup is expected of players:
- In the First Talent, we choose Agility as it provides extra movement speed for Cici whilst on the battlefield. This would be essential when trying to dominate the early game.
- In the Second Tier Talent, Players can pick Festival of Blood, as it provides extra sustain and regen in the form of a spell vamp for Cici. It also increases her regen, the higher her number of kills.
- In the Third Tier Talent, players can pick Brave Smite as it regens %HP when one deals damage with skills, thus further increasing her sustain potential.
- Whilst using Cici, players should choose the Vengeance spell, whilst laning in the exp lane with her. This would greatly increase her survivability when faced with burst-damage enemy heroes.
- Another spell players can consider if they intend to go to the exp or side lane is Sprint, as it provides extra movement speed to make it easier for Cici to rotate and catch up with enemy targets.
Mobile Legends Cici Best Builds
One can try many builds on Cici. All one needs to do is to just follow the enemy’s pick and then decide the role on the battlefield. Cici is a Fighter role hero who relies on combining skills and her mobility advantage for higher damage output on the battlefield.
Thus, due to her low cooldown of skills, she is a skill-dependent hero who can easily kite enemies with her skills. We have set out the following template in our guide to try out with Cici on the Mobile Legends battlefield.
MLBB Cici equipment build is centered on dealing damage to enemies whilst having high mobility and sustain on the battlefield. Thus, Players on buying boots, can then proceed by building War Axe as it increases damage dealt to enemy units over time as well as grants extra mobility which would sync well with Cici’s passive. Following up with the Hunter Strike item provides extra movement speed and physical penetration when attacking enemy targets.
Bruteforce Breastplate helps increase defense and mobility the more you use Cici’s skills. Malefic Roar is also a good pick as increases her Physical penetration against enemy targets, thus making even the tankiest of fighters shriek in fear on the battlefield. Lastly, a defensive item like Athena Shield helps reduce damage from magic burst heroes.
MLBB Cici Gameplay Tips
Cici is a unique fighter role hero with high mobility and sustain abilities. Cici gets to have an extremely low cooldown of her skills during the mid to late game stage making it even easier to excel on the battlefield as she can easily move and out-damage most enemy targets.
Nevertheless, a player must have a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Cici guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late gameplay of Cici.
Due to her skillsets and capabilities, it is mostly expected that one goes to Exp lane with Cici. On reaching the exp lane, unlock Cici skill and strategically use it to kite and zone enemies in the lane. After clearing the first minion wave, zone out and take the crab to gain more exp.
Whilst laning in the early game, use Cici’s Buoyant Bounce skills for extra mobility, since using the skill on an enemy hero would allow one to use it again for the second time. It thus helps to properly position in a lane whilst zoning and dominating against your enemy exp laner. One can utilize the following skill move with Cici during the early game on the battlefield:
Skill 1 + Skill 2 + Skill 2 (again) + Basic attacks + Skill 1
Players should remember to better maintain the stacks of their passive, and use Basic attacks whenever Cici’s skills are on cool down.
The new optimization to the battlefield mechanics now brings out an extra movement speed of 10s before the turtle spawns and 10s after it has been taken. This allows full and easy lent maneuvering and ease in taking objectives. In short, when the turtle spawns during this phase, one should always prioritize taking the turtle and other main objectives.
To properly maximize Cici’s damage output during this phase, Cici should use her ultimate ability to connect and link enemies. Then one can proceed to use her first skill to continuously deal damage to them. Whilst doing this it is important to prioritize enemy Jungler and mage with these skills so they can easily be taken down. Players can use the following combo to gain an upper hand on the battlefield with Cici:
Skill 3 + Skill 2 + Skill 1 + Skill 2 + Skill 1
This is the point of the game where players need to be very careful of their positioning and timing. After getting her hands on most of her core equipment, Cici can easily kite enemies whilst efficiently sustaining herself on the battlefield thanks to her insanely low cooldowns and mobility.
In this phase, she should also prioritize targeting solo lane pushers and easily take them down. Cici can also be a good split pusher as she can maximize her high mobility to join in team fights midway and finish off enemy backlines or low HP enemy targets.
